Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu thanked Americans for including him on the list of most admired men of 2017.

"I'm honored," said Netanyahu. "My staff just told me that there was a Gallup poll where I was included in the ten most admired people by the American public. I appreciate that- not because of the support for me, but first and foremost for my country Israel. Thank you, America."

Netanyahu came in at number nine in the Gallup poll of the most admired men of 2017, ahead of Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, the Dalai Lama, and Vice President Mike Pence. President Barack Obama, President Donald Trump, and Pope Francis placed first, second and third, with 17, 14 and two percent respectively citing them as their first or second choice.

No Jewish women made the list top ten most admired women, although one percent of Americans named Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg as their first or second choice. Less than 0.5% named Ivanka Trump, President Trump’s Jewish daughter, their first or second choice. Hillary Clinton, Michelle Obama and Oprah Winfrey topped the overall list for women.

The poll was based on telephone interviews with 1,049 adults ages 18 and over conducted between Dec. 4 and Dec. 11. It had a margin of error of plus or minus four percentage points.
